A disaster can strike at any time – sometimes without warning. It is important for every Floridian, especially citizens with disabilities and other special needs, to plan ahead for an emergency situation and know what to do in the event of an emergency.

This Web site offers resources and information specifically tailored for people with disabilities/special needs and their families to help prepare for emergencies, protect themselves and be survivors. The links below provide additional information on preparedness planning, evacuation and shelters.

  • Special Needs Shelters are for clients and their designated care giver only. Efforts will be made for the rest of your household in the regular shelter.
  • Application DOES NOT automatically guarantee assignment. Medical staff at the shelter will make the final decision based on current needs.
